With an integrated text and video combination, Physiological Aspects of Sport Training and Performance, Second Edition (Enhanced), presents an in-depth discussion of physiological adaptation to exercise. Students will learn the importance of an evidence-based approach in prescribing exercise, while sports medicine professionals and health care providers will appreciate using the text as a primary reference on conditioning and performance of athletes.


This special enhanced e-book edition includes 80 drills that cover warm-up, flexibility, balance, plyometric, speed training, and agility exercises. Forty of those drills are accompanied by embedded video clips of the drill being performed, and a longer drill features a complete warm-up routine.


This text covers a range of topics, including environmental influences on performance, hydration status, sport nutrition, sport supplements, and performance-enhancing drugs. The second edition also incorporates the following features to enhance practical application and facilitate students' learning:


  • Chapter objectives provide an overview of key content in each chapter.
  • Chapter review questions help students assess their learning.
  • In Practice sidebars bring chapter content to life in a practical manner and help students better understand the material.


Physiological Aspects of Sport Training and Performance, Second Edition, provides a strong basis for understanding adaptation to exercise and appreciating how changes in program variables can alter training adaptations. The text serves as both a key educational tool and primary reference for exercise prescription for athletes.
